    Hi everyone,

    As some of you know, with Paulton's blessing, I have turned the 2017 Andyson Memorial medallion (the one that Slicedpepper posted on all our walls) into a real stainless steel golf ball marker.

    As much as I would have liked to send one to everyone that completed the first two rounds of stroke would have been a little pricey. So I decided to buy a limited number of them (50) (I was sent 51 of them and I'm going to hang on to one of them) and randomly select players that completed the first two rounds and send them out as a little memento of this years event.

    First, there are a few players that are deserving of one- darek2...mystry78...Paulton & his helpers...bery111...Ducati916...Slicedpepper...TWOMINUSONE...Shedite & WigerToods2010.

    Here are the players that were selected at random-

    Young46, PSUTOM, K7JBQ, Mbaggese, conveyorguy, Fuzzygaz, MainzMan, Qputts, Overtheedge, drmoose, hpurey, Bowl64, Leggoman13, gonefission, Romax, alanti, Kissmydivot, Cuber, Scotthope, opyeuclid, Oneeyedjohn, frappefort, txzdave, lonniescott711, Yankeejim, VEM9000, AussieMick11, Bigknight, Bogeyplus, RoggRR, okwestly, Miokontic, RonCarr, bluey403, MMills785, Jimbog1964, kavvz, twinponds169 & Butchbay.

    So, for anyone on this list that lives in the UK, bery111 will be sending you a friend invite and you need to touch base with him as he will be sending you your ball marker and you need to send him your address.

    For anyone in Australia or New Zealand, Alanti will be sending you yours. Please accept his invite and work out the details.

    I'll be taking care of the U.S. and the ROTW, so if your name is on this list and you receive an invite from me...please answer it, as I need your address to send you your gift.


    Lastly, I would like the last ball marker to find it's way to Dennis' family. I am asking for anyone's help to remember if there is a player that has contact with his family and who could help me get this marker into their hands. Please send me a pm if you know how to help, don't post on my wall.

    With all that said, I know I forgot things to say and will post any updates in this thread as they become clear...stay tuned.

    Wayne, This is just too cool ! What a wonderful tribute and reminder of our departed friend. A truly fitting memento that almost has me at a loss for words ( don't you all wish, lol ).Sincerely though, a standing ovation to you for keeping the community spirit alive. Doc:)

    Very nice gesture indeed mrcaddie. I see I was lucky enough to get picked as a recipient and I am very grateful for that. I am already designing an oak "shadow box" with an led light to proudly display it in memory of Andyson. (I love building one of a kind things) Thank you so much. Romax.

    That is just beyond awesome, Wayne! A wonderful gesture that is so fitting to an event that has been above and beyond from the get go last year. This community certainly has someone grinning from ear to ear and beaming with pride from above! TP
